Part 1- Printing Shell
Printing went well. got to test in both orientations, I think with the smooth side up produces the best finish in the end. The other Ultimaker seemed to be having trouble on Sunday night with some feed issues. I made it through 3 prints without a hitch. The smaller shells were printed on the “high quality” setting. I didn’t think there was a discernible difference for this model that was worth the time hit so I downgraded it to standard for the larger shell.
The only part that didn’t print satisfactorily were the joints at the base edge of each shell. This is more than likely a design fault as I get used to the medium. I realise now that they’re not structurally sound enough and their position at the base of the model will pretty much always lead to a bad print.
Part 2 – Return of the Hot Dog Truck : Hot Dawg
This hot dog truck had been hanging out near the 3D Printers and I thought it could do with some upgrades. I think he’s more likely to sell more dogs with some bespoke signage and by hiring dedicated staff.
Here’s a full list of measurements, taken with my calipers. I think the ones I need to focus on are the ones relating to the roof. I think here is going to be the only point of contact for any planned bracket.
Bumper to bumper : 125.50 mm
Roof length (to lip): 40.35mm
With lip: 45.02mm
Roof width: 87.82mm
Vent length: 18.95mm
Vent width: 14.10mm
Side height(without top roof): 45.41mm
Top roof from side end: (5.52mm)
Window height: 17.31mm
Lip width: 1mm -ish
